Mini Session prep information

I am so excited to meet you and your little one! Below is my prep information.

Please bring the following:
- your critter
- a few cups of small, high value treats
- favorite toys or activities (noisy is good!)

Prior to your session please have your critter exercised and pottied. Also, bring them hungry! I want them to work for their treats to keep their attention.

I'm happy to help with any specific questions leading up to your session so feel free to send me an email or text.

If the door to my studio is shut when you arrive, please wait a moment as there might be a session wrapping up.

There will likely be a session after yours so it is important that you’re on time. If we are a little behind timing-wise don’t worry! Everyone will get their 15 minutes.

The building is animal friendly but leashes or carriers are required until you get up into my studio. You are responsible for your dog’s behavior so please keep in mind that there will be other dogs around.

Please be prepared to help with holding treats/toys to guide them for posing. There might be times where you’ll need to hold your critter if they are nervous. So please don’t be surprised if you end up in some final images!
